I am buying flat paks tomorrow AM. Having a last minute nervous about alpair 7 vs fe 126n!
To incredible tired from working since 4:30 AM two days ago to pick thru all the thread. I got the Melba's for the flat paks tho!
Driving them from a sixties 20 watt (more like 12 I suspect, clean) valve amp which nevers gets much past 9:30 on the volume controll as it is. I think that the speakers at present are closer to 90 SPL tho.
Please tell me to buy the alpairs! I like what I hear about them, someone just spooked me today, mentioned having 86 SPL speakers and a 200 watt SS amp
basically, will I be able to drive them from valve amp, it's NOT SE? I like the idea of more bass from the Alpairs

You might have an issue with SPL.

I recommend 10w minimum for Alpair 7, but in smaller rooms people are loving them with less. My bigvalve amp is usually running 20w (triode PP)

A well executed P/P 6BQ5 / EL84 should be quite adequate for Alpair7.3 - my Tubelab SimplePP outperforms a Topping TP30 in every respect (well, except for the power consumption / heat dissipation thing)

not
even

Default Ben From "Sound with style", Good Job!!!

I just received my Frugal Horn flat pack from Ben from "Sound with style" in Melbourne. Unreal! I am well impressed, with the speed of delivery, the way it was packed and the value for money. i am probably capable of cutting them out my self, but for the money, my time is best not spent behind a saw.
Again...Good job!
